We all need to find emotional equivalents to our intellectual understandings if our spiritual practice is to progress. Here Sangharakshita talks about how joy and happiness are characteristic Buddhist emotions that we seem to be missing out on. Mudita, the happiness we feel in other people’s good fortune, can be cultivated through practice.

From the talk entitled Reason and Emotion in the Spiritual Life: Right Resolve, outlining the positive emotions emphasized in Buddhism. Talk given in 1968 as part of the series The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path.
